A helper to control the flow of time

Latest Version on Packagist GitHub Workflow Status StyleCI Quality Score Total Downloads

Carbon is an excellent library to work with time in PHP projects. The Spatie\TestTime\TestTime class contains a few functions that under the hood manipulate the time that's considered the current time by Carbon.

// the flow of time is frozen
TestTime::freeze();

// we're now one year in the future
TestTime::addYear();

// will report the real current year + 1
$year = (new Carbon())->format('Y');
